Flammaversary Terra Cotta Roundup

If you've ever been here before, you know that I have a crush on terra cotta pots. What's not to love? They're inexpensive, versatile, and EVERYWHERE. So let's recap some of the projects that came out of the garden center this last year, shall we?
 
When your Christmas decorations are either melted or in storage, what do you do?
Why, you hit the garden center and make more!
 Who doesn't need more coasters?
 Especially if they're cheap and quick and cute.
Want something unique to grace your garden?
How about an easy pedestal birdbath with some sparkle?
Just a short shopping list of supplies is all you need...
...to add a water feature to your patio that's all you.
Twine, a saucer and a grapevine wreath add up to...
 ,,,the perfect hanging birdbath with a bling-y touch!
Yes, almost everyone has made the triple tiered planter by now.
But did you make it for your doggie door?
 Okay, sure, sprinkler donuts are made out of cement, not terra cotta.
But maybe you'll forgive me and try this easy project yourself?
When you need a base for your cloche, what do you do?

Whip up a seaside stunner yourself on the cheap, of course.
 
Did we have fun doing these? Oh yeah. And we have more coming soon!

I love them... love them... love them ALL!
Confession: I have not yet made a triple-layer planter : ( But I feel it coming on... when the temps stop reaching 100+ every day.
